    A Tribute To The Man Known Simply As "Woody"

    Tom Howard, Chris Halden, Bill Wood & Chris Middlebrook

    Bill "Woody" Wood was a husband, a father, a friend, and a bandy player. He represented the United States in Bandy on several occasions, as a member of the National Team.

    Wood's Bandy jersey was retired after his passing, and is proudly displayed at the Guidant John Rose Minnesota Oval, the home of USA Bandy. We miss him every day.

    USA Bandy will never forget Woody, or his contributions to the game of Bandy in the United States.
